Why Hire a Behavioral Health Copywriter?
Why should you hire an experienced behavioral health/mental health copywriter? Do you really want to educate the copywriters you hire? Do you want to hire a two or more copywriters to meet your copy needs? Or do you want a copywriter who can write any piece of copy?
I am Nora King, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and copywriter. Most recently, I trained with American Writers & Artists, Inc. (AWAI) to develop the copywriting skills I offer you here. This service builds on my prior training at the University of Southern California (USC).
I have been licensed to practice counseling since 1998 in Tennessee and since 1999 in Virginia. I worked in the home health industry while in the Nashville Tennessee region and it was there that I developed an interest in behavioral health/mental health. I then moved to the Greeneville/Bristol/Kingsport/Johnson City region when a job opened in Greeneville.
I moved back to my home state of Virginia in 2001 when a counseling opportunity opened in the local community services board. I worked there for almost 14 years. While there I learned much about the needs of the chronically mentally ill, their families/caregivers, and about chronic medical illness and substance dependence. As a counselor I worked with individuals, groups, and families. I also took on case management responsibilities.
What Does This Mean for You?
It is this multi-layered first-hand experience that I bring to my career as a copywriter. It is this experience that makes me your go-to copywriter. This is the reason I established behavioralhealthcopy, this because I understand the behavioral health/mental health industry.
Specifically, my interest is in meeting the B2B and B2C needs of the behavioral health/mental health industry. Advocates for the severely mentally ill wear many hats. We are the buyers and sellers treatment facilities, providers of medical services, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, insurance, furniture, educational materials, to name just a few.
Challenges come from different directions. There are the needs of the identified client and their social network. Politics, policy, procedures, mandates of third-party payers and regulatory authorities.
Just as it takes a village to meet the needs of individuals, B2B and B2C companies and organizations work together to meet collective goals. As you know, the experience of chronic and persistent mental illness taxes one’s ability to cope with activities of daily living. It takes the persistent efforts of advocates like us to assist and advocate for long-term success so clients can live successfully in the least-restrictive environment.
